It’s a beautiful day and looks to be a beautiful night coming up. Here are some ideas for how to enjoy it!

  • Joan Jett and the Blackhearts are coming to Coney Island tonight as part of the FREE Seaside Summer Concert Series. The show begins at 7:30 p.m. at West 21st and Surf Ave in Coney Island.
  • Across the bridge in Staten Island, come out to Richmond County Bank Ballpark for a screening of the family-friendly and memorable “Field Of Dreams,” starring Kevin Costner and directed by Phil Alden Robinson. Doors open at 7:30 p.m., the film begins at 8:30 and the stadium has covered seating, as well as concession stands available for purchasing food and drink.
  •  “Welcome to Pine Hill” is being screened at Fort Greene Park at 8:30 p.m.. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. at the entrance by Myrtle and North Portland Avenues. The film is about what happens when a former drug dealer who works as a claims adjuster receives earth-shattering news. Developed by multimedia artists Carl Skelton and R. Luke DuBois, the film is a thought-provoking piece. Audience members are invited to share their own warm-to-hot feelings by SMS from their smartphone directly to the screen.
    A series of short films created by Isabella Rossellini will also be screened, entitled “Burt Talks To The Bees.”
